Performance- and Knowledge-Based Items
The 21st Century Skills Assessment uses a psychometrically validated blend of interactive, performance-based questions that allow students to authentically perform complex tasks in simulated applications, and multiple choice, knowledge-based questions.
Reports that Inform Instruction
All 21st Century Skills Assessment reports provide proficiency data across four levels (Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, Advanced) not only for overall proficiency, but also for each of the NETS-S 2007 strands, and for each standard measured by the project.
Aligned to ISTE NETS-S 2007 Refreshed Standards
The assessment is aligned to all 24 standards in the following six strands:
- Creativity and Innovation
- Communication and Collaboration
- Research and Information Fluency
- Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
- Digital Citizenship
- Technology Operations and Concepts
